Church Concerts The sound of music! On Sunday 11th March, St Mary’s hosted yet another special musical event – this time a ‘songs from the shows’ concert. Many of the singers were members of the church choir, along with other guests, who came together to sing songs from some of the great musicals across the ages. The afternoon included music from the Ivor Novello period of the 1940’s before moving on to the ‘South Pacific’, ‘Phantom of the Opera’ and the hits from Andrew Lloyd Webber’s shows through the years. The featured songs were cleverly chosen, thanks to Music Director (and St Mary’s choirmaster) Bob Pegnall and pianist David Felstead whose accompaniment was accompaniment was instrumental (as it were) to the afternoon’s entertainment. The free concert was enjoyed by a large and appreciative audience who were invited to make a donation towards the cost of church repairs.
